Join Christine Simon of Seattle's LGBTQ+ Bottom Dwellers on an exciting expedition to Malapascua Island, Philippines to dive with thresher sharks!
Perfectly timed to coordinate with our Dumaguete LGBTQ+ Scuba Vacation the following week, you'll fly into Cebu/Mactan Island (CEB) from where you'll be transferred to tiny Malapascua Island, famous for exciting encounters with thresher sharks!
With three boat dives scheduled each day and deep dives for threshers, it's easy to get your fill of nitrogen, so bring a dive computer and make sure you know how to use it. This excursion is best suited for Advanced Open Water divers or higher. Air-conditioned accommodations and breakfast are included, along with a lot of diving.
We are happy to match you with a roommate if you travel solo, or ask us about a single supplement if you prefer your own room. It's easy to find a dive buddy when you're traveling with friends!
